Tag and Tattered Flowers

Hi Everyone

This is a tag that I made for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 and  the Fashionable Stamping Challenge.

Many of us are huge fans of Ranger and Tim's techniques/creations. I try to participate as often as I can in the 12 tags of 2012 and below you can see my take on Tim's tag for August.

August Tag

I improvised Tim's tag as there were several items that I did not have, however,  by swapping some of the techniques around I was still able to meet the challenge.  Techniques for the August Tag are available on Tim's blog by clicking HERE.

As I did not have the folders Tim used I used an oval tag and  another sizzix embossing folder. Instead of a stamped frame I used a die cut frame, inking it with Dark soot DI and then clear embossing.  I used a crown stamp in the centre of the aperture, instead of the shadow  stamp image Tim used.

The handmade tattered florals were made using Sizzix TH die cuts and kraft card. This is the first time I have made these flowers and I had great fun.

Over at Fashionable Stamping this week  challenge  29 is  Anything Floral/Handmade Flowers.
As always the DT have created fabulous inspirational pieces and its  always fun to enter.

Crafty Hugs as always
